Eight Middle and Upper School Art Students Receive Awards

Last night, art from eight Middle and Upper School students was showcased for their contributions to the success of the 2018-2019 Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace Youth Art Exhibition. Art teachers Sam Salazar and Megan Acevedo, along with their students Esther Adebi '24, Natalie Biden '23, Julia Goodwin '19, Riley Greene '24, Sasha Jernakoff '19, Serena Patel '19, Katie Payne '25, and Hanzhi Shen '19 received awards during a reception and ceremony at the Blue Ball Barn.
The students' artwork--describing "what peace means to them"--was framed and has been on display at locations including A. I. Nemours Hospital for Children, Legislative Hall, The Grand, The Music School of Delaware, Hockessin, Wilmington and Kirkwood libraries, and the University of Delaware’s Arsht Hall. Over 100,000 people visited these locations between November 2018 through April 2019. To learn more about the Pacem in Terris Youth Peace Art project, click here.
